Small head what are the causes?

Patient

Q: My boyfriend has a really small head compared to the rest of his body It's one of the first thing people notice about him. He's 5'11 and roughly 230 pounds. r My parents believe he has microephly, which also lead them to believe he is mentally ill. I don't believe he' mentally ill since i've been with him a year, and feel I would know if I was with someone who is like that. I menioned it to his mother, and she said that he was born 3 months prematurely. So I was wonderin could that be a cause of his small head?
